Jennifer Townsend

An adjunct faculty member at CCS and Wayne State University, Jennifer Townsend teaches film studies including Introduction to Film, Science Fiction Film and the Anxiety of Change, and Documentary Film: Truth, Representation, and Transformation. She also teaches college writing courses including the Art of Argument and Intermediate Writing with an emphasis on genre-based research.

Townsend’s passion for film is reflected in her research and teaching of film as a living global art form that is constantly evolving in response to the desires and needs of its viewers, artists and the industry. A related area of her teaching and research is the impact of technology and digital media on the art and practice of both film and writing.

Townsend is an avid cyclist whose favorite place to ride is in the city of Detroit. She’s also a proud member of Red Wings Fans International—“Defending the Honor of Hockeytown…all over the world!”
